Resident no pants on in lobby, group comes to tour the site, phone rings, accident in the bathroom...what order would you do things and why?
Tend to emergency medic staff to find out about accident in bathroom, apologize to people about delay with the tour, tend to the resident and his/her needs, phone the missed call and apologize for the delay. This answer she didn't like...answer was to tend to resident's needs first...but I thought this was less logical if the accident could have been a fall in the bathroom and very life threatening.
